12.3% A bit hot, but damn does it taste good. There was also more yeast in that little bucket than I have seen in some of my 5 gallon batches, haha.

Cool! I'm doing one around Christmas to give away next Christmas. Probably 4 lb of 2 row, and 4 ounces of Biscuit or Amber.

How do you describe a barley wine? I've never tried one and can make a batch for the cost of a bottle. Any way to describe it?

Basically a really strong, really flavorful, really malty beer(at the English one is). Mine is really light for a normal barleywine, so its getting called a blonde barleywine. There were 4.75# of grain and 5 oz of corn sugar in mine and looking at it now I probably should have left the corn sugar out because of how far the yeast attenuated. I was anticipating the yeast slowing down earlier and wanted to thin it out a bit, but they kept chugging at its at 1.019 after two weeks, down from 1.106.

hey divrguy... barleywine also has an incredibly long ferment time, and time in the bottle (think months, not weeks).

it's worth the wait, but it's a LONG wait
